Another mini review:
The book is “Tiny Sunbirds Far Away” by Christie Watson. It received an 8.2/10, and was like for “its wonderful narration by a young girl”. Members really enjoyed this author, and would read any other work by her. The story is set in Nigeria and follows a mother and her two children who are forced to move from their comfortable home in Lagos to live with relatives in a village.
